We have released 10 year anniversary edition of the album Beloe

Dear friends, we have released 10 year anniversary edition of the album Beloe – just before our tour. This is the new version, painstakingly re-mixed and remastered by Fedor. The best tracks (according to musicians) are collected from the both releases of the album Beloe (Russian Белое: Ловля Злых Зверей, 2008 and Argentinian Beloe: Hunting For Fierce Beasts, 2010). And two tracks were not released ever. The album is available now on the main digital platforms: iTunes: https://apple.co/2OoZw3z Amazon: https://amzn.to/2PFiGqJ Google Play: http://bit.ly/2ANpuug

Our new song – an ancient Russian lullaby in our interpretation.

Our new song – an ancient Russian lullaby in our interpretation. We will play it at our upcoming concerts and maybe we will include it in the next album. Lullabies were used as a protection against evil, danger, or disease – if you see something bad, horrible in a dream then you don’t see it in reality. The ancient lullabies lyrics were magic and scaring, it was their power. Photo by Մշակութային վերածնունդ Օրորոց (2)

Theodor Bastard – Kolodec (Official music video)

Theodor Bastard have finished the whole soundtrack for the game Life is Feudal: MMO

“The music of the Early Middle ages — this is where modern music originates from, after all, and especially the period of Northern early medieval music that we know so little about. Take any folk music — it’s like a breath of antiquity that has reached us, contemporary people. You simply can’t not get inspired by this, it’s like archeology or paleontology. Full of mysteries and never ending sources of inspiration! For instance, take various folk music harmonies, instruments with various sound and tunings.

In this day and age, everything is standardized and factory made — all those same model plastic instruments that people use in a modern music band — it hasn’t always been like this. Medieval world is a cluster of various ideas and musical concepts starting from instrument set and ending with harmony and melody ideas. It was a period of wonder, and the music itself had a different meaning.” — Theodor Bastard

Today the famous game development studio Ice-Pick Lodge have published the very interesting article about the collaboration between Ice-Pick Lodge and Theodor Bastard. Soon we will see the game Pathologic 2 by Ice-Pick Lodge. Theodor Bastard have created 12 songs for this game!
Pathologic 2 is a dark and dreamlike story in which three very different doctors try to defeat an unvanquishable plague in the unusual steppe town that’s being crippled by this unfathomable disease.
Yana and Fedor worked with pleasure and with particular attention to the details on how this unique game should sound in its new guise.
